Lost Diamond Ring at Clontarf

January 5th, 2011 by Brad Lovell

Belinda lost her beautiful diamond engagement ring while swimming in netted area of Clontarf Beach. She was throwing a ball around and realised later on the ring was no longer on her finger. I met with Belinda and her husband Alan the next night at low tide. Unfortunately the water was around neck deep, which made recovering targets difficult. After about 2 hours of searching, I began to get cold and called it a night. But I was not going to give up on Belinda and Alan, I knew the ring had to be somewhere in the netted area. The next day, there was an even lower tide, so I went back for attempt two. This time I weighed myself down with about 20 lbs of lead to make recovering/digging easier in the deeper water. After about an hour of searching for the second time, I found a sparkling diamond ring sitting in my scoop. Hope it was the right ring, I showed it to Alan. The smile on Alan’s face answered my question, this was indeed Belinda’s lost engagement ring. Alan and Belinda, it was great to meet you guys, and thank you kindly for a generous reward.
